Photoelectron spectra of hexafluorobenzene (C6F6) cluster anions and its Au complex anion were measured in the gas phase at the photon energy of 3.49 eV, using a magnetic bottle electron spectrometer having ≈ 80 meV resolution. The spectra show unresolved broad features: The vertical detachment energies (VDEs) were determined from the maxima of the spectra. The VDE of (C6F6)- n gradually increases by 0.1-0.2 eV with the cluster size (n=1-8) from 1.56(3) to 2.54(6) eV, and the VDE of (Au-C6F6)- anion is 1.99(5) eV.
